A new community venture is now due to take over running Moseley Road Baths from 1st April 2018.
The Moseley Road Baths Action Group, including the Friends of MRB, that has been working since 2016 to secure a future for the baths has now formed a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (MRBCIO, registered charity no 1176432) which plans to take over running the pool.
We are currently seeking a new chair – see here for more info. We will also be looking for volunteers to help with reception, lifeguarding, cleaning days, communications and various other duties. Please do get in touch if you can help us in any way.
We have run a very successful crowdfunding campaign, but still need some further resources to “seed-fund” our community swimming initiative, so if you know funders who could help please put them in touch with us too.
We are also working with heritage partners – the National Trust, World Monuments Fund and Historic England – and Birmingham City Council, who are all working together to secure the longer term future of this beautiful building and ensure it can be used for other uses alongside swimming.
The Friends of Moseley Road Baths remain the best link in to news about the Baths and ways to get involved, but if you are interested and might have some of the skills to help with this initiative, please contact Karen Leach, current chair of the action group and CIO: Karen@moseleyroadbaths.org.uk or 0121 685 1155.
